Using Musique Concréte as technique for innovative composition
‘Using Musique Concréte as technique for innovative composition’ is an educational workshop developed for music students of age 14-16 at the United World College (UWC) in Maastricht.
The concept of the workshop consists of fusing digital and acoustic sound realms to create meaningful, storytelling compositions by recording environmental sounds and sampling them with the Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) REAPER FM.
The student’s task was to translate a Salvador Dali artwork into a sonic composition with focus on surrealism.
This workshop was developed from May - October 2016 and conducted from September – October 2016 in close collaboration with the UWC and friend and colleague Abel Enklaar.
There is a second version of this workshop currently being developed and will be executed at the UWC
June - November, 2017.
